Very much expected on team-bhp which has its share of Zen, Esteem, Baleno fans. I am counting only Maruti products here. Here they will not allow you to give away a Zen

Before somebody flames me, let me state I also drive a last batch mpfi Zen. And before the decision to buy the same, had used team-bhp opinions/inputs extensively, as it was a big decision to buy something that was being phased out.

Happy time ahead with the 'Pocket-Rocket'

cheers

Is it worth it to spend on it now ? (approx cost might be 20K-22K). I guess it should be ok for another 40K kms without much trouble ??? Am i right ?
Its better you keep it because....

...if you buy the Alto after driving the Zen, you will surely repent. Forget the Alto, even the WagonR doesn't have so much driving pleasure. In other words, you would be downgrading
